Although many people believe Charles Darwin established the theory of evolution after his trip to the Galapagos Islands, this isn’t quite true. In fact, the theory of evolution had been around for some time. What Charles Darwin solved was the mystery of how and why evolution occurred, with an idea he called natural selection. Natural selection is the theory that individuals born with characteristics that make them best suited for their environment are the ones most likely to survive. In other words, the figurines in this Toob have come to be through thousands of years of mutations and variations that allow them to survive within the isolated habitat of the Galapagos Islands!
